PSWAR, Endless Installation: A Ghost Story For Adults (2009)
PSWAR, Endless Installation: A Ghost Story For Adults (2009)

On 25 November ADA organizes the second edition of Breakfast at Noon at Kunstvlaai 2012. Breakfast at Noon is a series of thematic encounters for which ADA invites guests to present and discuss their work with an audience around a breakfast table. The guests are invited for the specific position they take through their work and the way in which they structure their working processes.

Each breakfast session reflects on questions that come forward from the practice of the invited guests. For this session at Kunstvlaai the two collaborative research based initiatives Public Space With a Roof and 98weeks will give a brief presentation of their work and we will discuss multiple approaches that groups working together have adapted in their working processes, as well as work ethics and the role of audience participation.

Public Space With a Roof (PSWAR) was founded in 2003 and started by organizing projects in their gallery space at Overtoom 301 in Amsterdam. The space was initiated as a research and a project space with the aim to enable artists to develop and present their ideas, realize collaborative projects and to engage in critical discourse. Since 2007 the gallery has been closed and PSWAR now develops new projects, which are hosted by different institutions in the Netherlands and abroad. The current members of PSWAR are Tamuna Chabashvili, Adi Hollander and Vesna Madzoski.

98weeks, founded by Marwa Arsanios and Mirene Arsanios in 2007, is an artist’s initiative running a non-profit project space in Beirut. 98weeks is conceived as a research project, that shifts its attention to a new topic every 98 weeks. Focusing on artistic research, combining both theoretical and practical forms of inquiry, their projects take multiple forms such as workshops, community projects and seminars, reading groups, publications and exhibitions.

Please Note: You are kindly requested to reserve a seat by mailing us. The breakfast will take place at the Conversation Corner during Kunstvlaai in Amsterdam. There will me a maximum of 25 people who can attend. There will be food and drinks served during the breakfast. Please note that you need to buy a ticket for the Kunstvlaai festival.
